Chaps

I just had lunch at Chaps on Highway 195 … met Celeste Shaw, the owner and ahhh curator of the place. The food there is always beyond the best and today I learned a bit about the owner. She’s addicted to “stuff.” I can relate. She used to be a critical care nurse. Instead of taking care of people, now she’s caring for vintage architectural and vintage “stuff.” I’m going to pitch someone a story about her.

Shaw is very talented at the curating and repurposing aspects. She owns a store in Spokane called Pink; tagline is “vintage salvage goods.” I think I’ve been there … it’s located at 154 South Madison in Spokane.

 

 

Here’s the link to her site:

Psst…. she also has a big barn and plans to have a barn sale this spring. Stay tuned.

Let Them Eat … Well You Know … Cake

Saturday, Jan. 24 is Poppy & Ivy’s second Birthday Bash. If you know Ms. Amy Holland at all, you know there will be cake, champagne, treats and the ever popular balloon bust (you KNOW you like it!).

Holland says she is every so thankful for her customer’s commitment to supporting local in tough times and “YOU deserve a treat! We look forward to seeing you,” Amy says.

Here’s a few of her new photos of vintage at Poppy & Ivy’s on lower Fremont (1315 NE Fremont).

Love vintage patterns!
